Vibrant Color | Still Life Paintings by Diane Rappisi

Diane Rappisi finesses layers of pastel into paintings embued with subtle drama. While the vibrant color works to create light and form, Rappisi also uses it as a highly expressive component, pushing and manipulating values to convey a variety of moods and feelings as she responds to a variety of subjects.
